| "I work in oil because it is so malleable. I can move it, shape it, blend it to the form I want. I can keep it whisper soft in transparent glazes or bold and textured with heavy application of the knife. I can be loose and fanciful or sharply real in my technique. I can paint on canvas for a softer image or on wood or ceramic for a harder look. Whatever the subject matter meeds to be accurately expressed is how I paint. "
"There are many experiences in this life that have profound impact on us; shaping how we see, interpret and interact with our world. There is both good and very bad in this world. But pulling inspiration from one's soul does not have to be about the angst and pain in life. We have a choice. The true glory to this Life is to see the beauty in spite of the pain. What life can take away as it changes, I can give back through the imagery that comes from my hands and spirit." ~ Pat Bistline
